Everyone should report this item on the bottom of his ebay listing. :p

Listing states "spyderco like" does that cover him with legal issues?

Definite fake. Note the lack of grooves in the G-10 for reversing the clip. I'd bet the steel isn't the advertised S30V either. Just calling it "Spyderco-like" isn't enough in my book, he should be required to grind the bug off the blade and advertise it as a SpyderFake.
I don't believe in safe queens, only in pre-need replacements.

Looks like a fake. The UKPK is left/right carry, so there should be slots on both sides for the clip, which this doesn't have. He probably bought it, thinking he was getting a good deal, and then when he received it realized it wasn't real. At least he's admitting it as not being a real Spyderco instead of trying to fool the next guy.

This will be the 3rd one that he has sold on ebay.

I thought that looked familiar. What a POS!

When listed, the knife was listed as a UKPK. I asked the seller why it was missing its left-hand carry clip grooves and reported the fake to eBay. He has since responded back saying he never listed it as a Spyderco and has re-listed it as "Spyderco like". Even changing the listing, he is free-riding on Spyderco's good will. Also, based upon his reply to me, I would guess he knows the knife is a fake.

I reported his listing to eBay the last time around and they took no action. These things really upset me.

Unless eBay has changed its policies, they will only pull auctions involving IP (copyright or trademark) violations if the owner of the IP complains. Even ignoring the round hole issue, the presence of Spyderco's name and :spyder: logo should be grounds for Spyderco to get this guy's auctions killed.

The one that I accidentally purchased from ebay paypal refunded me the money to my credit card. I showed paypal the link to the website where you could buy the chinese knock offs, explained the visual difference with the wire hole and there wasn't even any discussion. It was sold as a spyderco and was a fyderco so they give you the money back without any hassle.

At first the guy was being nice but then once he got the knife back he stopped responding so I filed the claim. It took a week as they allowed time for him to chime in, he didn't, boom goes the dynamite and I have my money.

That was a different guy from this seller, IIRC, right?

I also contacted Ebay and the seller as well. He replied "sorry I am not an expert on spyderco knives... I will change the title of the auction to say Spyderco like." I feel sorry for the last guy who bought one for over $50.
